Alien Arena 2008 Coming Soon To Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

COR Entertainment recently announced the release of Alien Arena 2008 for Windows and Linux based PCs. The freeware opensourced first person shooter is a followup to Alien Arena 2007, and features nearly all new game media, gameplay improvements, and a client that has been upgraded for improved visual effects as well as optimizations to improve fluidity and performance.

A Mac OS X version of the game is planned for release next week.

Alien Arena 2008 also offers a change to it's overall theme, moving towards a slightler darker, more serious tone, while still retaining a good bit of it's retro style, creating an interesting marriage between classic and modern sci-fi.  This resulted in completely new player models, many new weapon models and textures, and seventeen, yes, seventeen new levels!  The transformation is nothing short of remarkable.
There are major improvements in weapon effects, per-pixel lighting, texture resolution, and resource usage, as well as the addition of a cross platform server browser, FUSE.  Weapons have been tweaked for better balance, and movement has been enhanced with the addition of dodging abilities.  Alien Arena 2008 will run on Windows and Linux, and the OSX/Mac port will be released in one week.
